Please call 908-301-9095 to make an appointment to meet with Fred at his office.
Having an effective and up-to-date employment handbook is a critically important safeguard for any business. Just last month, in Aguas v. State of New Jersey, the New Jersey Supreme Court noted that employers may avoid being held vicariously liable if they exercised reasonable care to prevent and correct promptly any sexually harassing behavior. Thus, it has never been more important for a company to have an effective and efficient employment handbook in use.
